Very little is known about the daily life of the beautiful corals and sponges in the ocean. Photographer Daniel Stoupin took 150,000 shots to make this video clip of some of these marine animals, using a process known as focus stacking. The results are breath-taking.

I don’t know if I’m just extra emotional tonight or what, but I cried two times watching this video by director David Barnes. This kid’s honesty and the beautiful filming and editing, ahh it’s too much for me right now. A+

Theo is 10 years old, and almost blind. In this video he explains “what it’s like to be me” as part of an Emmy Award winning collection of short documentary portraits, featuring kids with a variety of medical conditions.

“Burning Questions” by James Victore

Designer James Victore has a really great Youtube Channel you should subscribe to. It’s called “Burning Questions” and he uses the outlet to directly answer questions sent to him, about life and making good work. The man definitely knows a thing or two, having some of his brilliant posters remain in MoMA’s collection. I should note the image at the top of this post is not his work, it was drawn by his friend, artist Jon Burgerman, for one of the intros.

James and I emailed back and forth a bit and he was as friendly and down to earth as he is in the videos. I asked him to pick out a few of his favourite videos so far and he kindly obliged, adding that he loves reading the heartfelt comments. So if any of the videos strike a chord with you, leave him a message, I know he’ll appreciate it!

Have a look at the videos James selected below:
